Marvel’s Echo series gets delayed confirms the showrunner Marion Dayre in a recent podcast appearance. Dayre was a guest on The Writers Panel talking about her career and how she has made it this far. Sadly for fans who were hoping to see it soon, Dayre confirmed that there is a delay in Echo. Originally the show was supposed to air in Summer of 2023, however Dayre says it is now more likely to hit in December of next year. Just around a year after this podcast appearance.
Ben Blacker: This [the podcast] comes out in a week or two. When does Echo premiere?
Marion Dayre: That will be probably a year from when this comes out.
Ben Blacker: Oh, are you kidding?! I thought it was like within months…Geez, I’m sorry.
Dayre did go on to talk about how pulling off a show for Marvel was so different to working on the likes of Better Call Saul. Essentially, with BCS, they got all the time they needed to get the script right, but that’s not normally how Hollywood works, not just Marvel Studios.
Now, there were some rumors that Echo did have some production issues. Whilst I won’t gossip as such, it does appear as there were some issues that caused delays. I have no idea whether that was in filming, scripting, or anything else?
As for the show, I’d rather delay any show that isn’t going to work as is. Get it right, and delay it, should always be the answer. Unless of course, it’s so bad you have to start from page 1? Echo will as I’m sure you know follow directly on from Hawkeye where Maya Lopez was first introduced. Hawkeye ended with Maya shooting mentor Wilson Fisk. However we know Vincent D’Onofrio returns in Echo, as does Charlie Cox’s Daredevil. I guess we will just have to wait longer to see what happened next with Maya and Fisk?
What do you think of the news that Marvel’s Echo gets delayed till around December 2023, as confirms showrunner Marion Dayre? As always, leave any thoughts below.
